This is my very first post and as you can see from my title...my husband and I are looking for some ideas.
Our beautiful boy is such a character in the day, always generally very happy and doing the normal things a 14 month old boy does, however...his night time sleeps are really ALL OVER THE PLACE!!
He goes sometimes a whole night with just the 1 wake up, but more frequently he has been waking up to 5 times a night and sometimes one of those wake ups can last for an hour or two, before he settles back down to sleep.
We have tried the CIO method...it didnt work, he would get so worked up and throw up. He enjoys the cuddles from either his daddy or mummy and we love giving him them, however we are tiring and really want him to get his sleep as well as ours.
He has a dummy which he uses ONLY for sleep, and we have no issue with it. We also play him some soft music and due to teething more recently we have used some medication all of which will assist with any pain associated.
I am really looking forward to hearing what you wonderful mothers have to say...
Thank you in advance
